Celebrating Fun: February 2013

January flew by and to be honest I was so busy working on orders, crafting up birthday gifts and baby shower items that I didn’t even have time to breath, much less do any fun extra celebrating :(

I plan on doing much better in February though!  We have a tradition around here they my little ones hold me to!  (See the post on our Valentine Tradition)  Along with our daily treats here are some other was to celebrate fun in February

February Celebrating Fun

4 – Thank a Mailman Day – leave a nice note and even a treat for your mailman!  We all like to get something other than a bill ;)

7 – Send a Card to a Friend Day – who doesn’t like to receive a note!

8 – Chinese New Year!  It’s the year of the Snake so make a snake craft or read a book about Chinese New Year.   We will for sure be having Chinese food for dinner this evening.

14 – Valentine’s Day – heart shaped foods, cards for friends, and any other ways that show your family to love them!  If you need some ideas, check out my Will You Be My Valentine? Board on Pinterest!

Valentine's Day breakfast

17 – Random Acts of Kindness Day – do something nice for someone you don’t know!

24 – Torilla Chip Day – make some homemade pico de gallo and guacamole to munch on as well ;)

Valentine Chair Bags

 

 I saw these bags on this blog and I knew immediately I had to make them for the boys!  Such a cute way to remind them how much I love them during the month of February. They really weren’t too hard to make and the boys loved waking up each morning to a little treat inside!
I had lots of leftover felt so I made a few “girlie” versions of the bag with ruffles for some friends. I sold them for $20 each. One of my friends came over and told me they sell these at Pottery Barn for WAY more than that!  Might have to make more of these for next year. Mama could get lots of craft supplies with just a few orders!
